I was born in Rome, where I live and work. After studying graphic design and photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, and illustration at MiMaster in Milan, I won the International Silent Book Contest in 2016 with my first picture book Ciao ciao giocattoli (Bye Bye Toys).
Up to now I work as a freelance illustrator for children’s books, magazines and newspapers.
